I've been Poisoned...Again! (oh, wait, wasn't the muffins!)

Hey all...Happy Thursday! It's freezing as far as I'm concerned (44 today!), so it's a good week to stay in, set the Pirate ship up for the kiddos, and get some Pirate time in myself!

I SOOOOO love this Best Mates set from Pink Poison! I know I've told you that already, but every time I finish a card with it, I fall in love with the whole set all over again! It's just so darn cute!

Every time I look at it I am reminded of how cute my own lil' mates are, too! I know I already told you this, too but in case you're just tuning into my blogworld, being a Mommy of twin boys, can't go wrong w/ this adorable little image!

For this card, I used a brown/gold color palette. I have this gold metallic paper from who-knows-where and I'm not really a gold kinda girl. My wedding rings are white gold and pretty much everything I own is either white gold or silver. However, it was out with old paper...gotta use it up, right? I also got a chance to use not only my Copic markers, but my new Copic Spica glitter pen, in what color? Yep, GOLD! These pens are super cool and totally sparkle...I love 'em! To top it off, albeit a bit OVER the top LOL, I used up some of these fun pompons from the Rusty Pickle line "A Pirate's Life" from last fall. Totally matched the paper and hey, it's CALLED A pirate's life, right?

Well, I hope you'll head on over to the Pink Poison blog...Marie always has such fun daily questions, weekly giveaways, and tons of cute samples...and that's just the start of it! She has some new releases this month and more fun planned for next month...I know I can't wait!

I just have to take time to say a HUGE, YUMMY Thank you to my awesome friend Darla for these amazing pumpkin muffins and sweet card she brought over today. I am lucky enough to have one of my best friends living right around the block from me, and when she bakes (which is often!), she shares! She is one of the most generous people I know, and a very talented stamper, too! Check out her SU page and also her fun family follies page...she has two crazy boys like me so we have a LOT of fun stories to share LOL! I just love her pumpkin muffins and they were still WARM when she brought them over...the plate pictured is missing one or three :D
Well, stay warm, everyone...I think Fall has a bite to it already...and I'm not talking about these yummy muffins! Hugs,
